Youll probably note that I should have written the apostrophe’s time’s up – but I couldnt be bothered.

Its all too hard. Its not needed. People shouldnt have trouble understanding what you mean.

When I teach business writing – I include the correct use of apostrophe’s.

Use apostrophes for contraction’s (omitted letters) – Dont use for plural’s
